Tim,

You May want to check Dennis Diver, thread & pix under"Mechanical & engine than scroll down to"Low Resistance between Rudder shaft & hull. I'm sure if he sees this thread he'll chime in with some helpful hints. BTW he does some excellent work Applause

 You'll have bad times, but they'll just wake you up to the good times you weren't paying attention to

Some people try to turn back their odometers.Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way.I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

thanks norm .i wonder if there is a non conductive bushing in the flange or is the rubber under it the isolation ?I've heard of you need two non metallic bushings one at the top and one at the bottom on the newer models. but they don't have the support arm do they?

Tim,

To tell U the truth I’ve never had the honor of changing out the rudder assembly in the 20 some odd years I’ve owned BigMs All the info on rudder re-bushing I could supply U with is what I’ve read on this site. All the info on rudder re-bushing BigM site over the years. I believe guys like Dennis & Jeff or a member that have had hands on experience would be more qualified. I’m also sure there are other members also that have taken on the nasty chore of getting out the rudder bushing I hear tell. I think Jeff’s web site also has a write up an / or pix of rudder changing. One thing I do recall be stated several times is when boat is put on the hard for change out make sure that it is high enough d'oh! can’t remember the height #s exactly but believe they’re some where around 3' H for the shaft to clear. Think AnyWho good luck & hopefully the bushings won’t give U too big of hassle Pray
